In re: City of Chicago 1 

vs. [ U.S.DistrictCourtNo.8239 

HermanN.Bundesen. etal. J 
Honorable A. J. Cermak, Mayor: 

Dear Sir— The above suit was instituted March 
14, 1928 by Samuel A. Ettelson, corporation counsel, 
and Joseph R. Roach, special assistant corporation 
counsel, pursuant to an ordinance passed on Feb- 
ruary 29, 1928 and appearing in the Journal of the 
Proceedings of the City Council for the years 1927- 
28 at page 2282. 

When the present corporation counsel assumed 
the duties of his office there was no record of this 
proceeding upon the law docket in the ofTice, nor 
any file containing pleading, trial brief, names of 
witnesses, or statement of facts. The case was once 
set for trial, according to the records of the clerk of 
the United States District Court, on March 7, 1930, 
and again on May 12, 1930. It has again been set 
for peremptory trial on November 5, 1931. 

The amended bill of complaint on file in this case 
in the District Court of the United iStates charges 
that Doctor Bundesen, while health commissioner 
in the years 1924 to 1927, secured copyrights for 
himself on certain books or pamphlets prepared by 
■ him and by his employees while on the pay roll of 
the city and at great expense to the city. These 
books or pamphlets related to health problems of 
adults and infants and were mailed to the citizens 
of Chicago at the expense of the city. Since Doctor 
Bundesen retired from the office of health com- 
missioner he used the copyright for his own private 
purposes, and it is claimed in this suit that the 
city, as employer of Doctor Bundesen during the 
time the copyrights were secured, is entitled to the 
benefit of the copyright and is further entitled to 
an accounting for the misuse of the city's money 
for Doctor Bundesen's private purposes. 

A trial of this case will involve considerable ex- 



pense and the time of this department with the re- 
sult, in my opinion, that the bill will be dismissed 
for want of equity. 

I believe that, if the facts set forth in the bill of 
complaint filed in this case are true and can be 
proved to be true, the remedy of the city in this 
case has been misconceived. 

There is no authority in the city of Chicago to 
secure for itself a copyright upon any literary mat- 
ter prepared by any city official in the course of 
his public duties, and there can be no claim, in my 
opinion, that the city, as employer of a city official 
who procures a copyright, is entitled to any property 
right therein. 

In the case of Callaghan v. Myers, 128 U. S. 617. 
the Supreme Court of the United States held that 
there was no legislation of the state of Illinois which 
forbade the obtaining of a copyright by the official 
reporter of the Supreme Court of the State of Illi- 
nois, who was a public officer appointed pursuant to 
statute, performing his duties at a fixed salary. Nor 
was there any such legislation directing that the 
proprietary rights to a copyright of the official re- 
porter should pass to the state of Illinois, or that 
the copyright should be taken out for or in the 
name of the state, as the assignee of such proprietary 
right; that in the absence of such legislation, even 
though a reporter may be a sworn public officer and 
even though he be paid a fixed salary for his labors, 
he is not deprived of the privilege of taking out 
a copyright covering matter which is the result of 
bis intellectual labor while in the performance of his 
official duties (page 647). 

There is no charge in the bill that Doctor Bun- 
desen derived any personal profit from any of the 
books or pamphlets which were printed and dis- 
tributed through the mails while Doctor Bundesen 
was commissioner of health. The object of the bill 
was to prevent the use of his copyright after Doc- 
tor Bundesen retired from office, and to reclaim for 
the city the exclusive right to disseminate informa- 
tion in relation to the health of adults and babies, 
in the form used by Doctor Bundesen while in office, 
and to compel Doctor Bundesen to account for pub- 
lic moneys expended in the collection of data and 
in the distribution of the books or bulletins which he 
copyrighted. 

I have shown that, under the law, there is no 
probability of establishing in the city the right to 
the copyright and consequently there is no prob- 
ability of establishing in this suit the exclusive right 
of the city to publish and circulate bulletins or book? 
of the nature and style copyrighted by Doctor Bun- 
desen. 

If the city has a right to an accounting for misuse 
of public funds, that right should be established in 
an ordinary action at law or in equity in the state 
courts without tying such action up with a claim 
to the benefits of the copyright. 

This department has no facts nor information 
available which support the claim that Doctor Bun- 
desen misused public funds for his private pur- 
poses and it would seem on the contrary, from the 
allegations of the bill filed in the United States Dis- 
trict Court, that the employees of the department of 
health and the moneys used in disseminating in- 
formation relating to public health were for public 
purposes and that Doctor Bundesen cannot be justly 
criticized on that account. 

I believe that the corporation counsel cannot pro-

secute the pending suit without stultification. This 
is especially true since Doctor Bundesen has become 
one of the official family of this administration who, 
by appointment of your honor with the concurrence 
of the city council, impliedly has been exonerated of 
any wrongdoing during his previous administration. 
I believe that the city council in approving his ap- 
pointment as health commissioner has repudiated 
the action taken by the city council in 1928 directing 
that suit be instituted against him, and therefore 
suggest that the council should confirm its latest 
expression of confidence in Doctor Bundesen by 
passing an order authorizing the corporation coun- 
sel to dismiss the pending suit against him in the 
District Court of the United States.

Opinion Concerning Powers of tiie City Council to Tax 

Shares of Stock Issued by Banks, Insurance 

Companies, Etc. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
-cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was ordered published and placed on file: 

Department of Law, 
Chicago, October 26, 1931. 

In re : Tax on Shares of Stock for 
Municipal Purposes. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On July 8, 1931, your honorable body 
passed an order (page 582) calling on the corpora- 
tion counsel for an opinion on the power of the 



city of Chicago to levy a tax for city purposes on 
certain shares of stock. The part of the order in 
point reads as follows : 

"Ordered, That the Corporation Counsel be and 
he is hereby requested to submit to this Council, 
an opinion on the powers the City Council may 
have to pass an ordinance for the purpose of 
laying and collecting a tax for the use of the City 
of Chicago of one dollar on every one hundred 
dollars of assessed or assessable value of all shares 
of stock of every bank, state or national, and 
trust company, located in and doing buisenss in 
the City of Chicago, and on all shares of stock of 
every domestic casualty, surety, guaranty or fi- 
delity company, fire or marine insurance com- 
pany, and finance corporation, subject to taxation 
in the City of Chicago." 
There is no power delegated to the city of Chi- 



1146 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



November 5, 1931. 



cago to tax shares of capital stock at the present 
time. A municipal corporation has no power to 
levy any tax except such as is specifically granted 
to it by the legislature. (Robbins vs. Kadyk. 31^, 
111., 290.) Nor could the legislature grant the power 
to levy a tax of just the kind mentioned. 

The General Assembly could lawfully authorize the 
city to impose a license tax for city purposes on the 
different classes of corporations mentioned, and it 
is possible that the law conferring such power 
could be framed so that the tax would be propor- 
tioned to the number of shares issued or even ttie 
par value of same. 

It is even possible that the legislature might au- 
thorize the imposition of an excise tax which is not 
primarily a property tax. But the tax suggested 
in the order quoted above would be a property tax, 
pure and simple, based on the value of the shares, 
since the order says "one dollar on every one hun- 
dred dollars of assessed or assessable value ot au 
shares of stock". Such a tax would be contrary to 
Section 9 of Article IX of the Constitution which 
provides that 

"For all other corporate purposes (except local 
improvements) ) , all municipal corporations may be 
vested with authority to assess and collect taxes; 
but such taxes shall be uniform in respect to per- 
sons and property within the jurisdiction of the 
body imposing the same." 

Under the provision just quoted and a similar pro- 
vision in the next section following the one quoted 
from it would be unlawful to levy a property tax 
unless it applied to the property of all persons and 
all kinds of property alike. About the only excep- 
tion to this rule is an exception which the Consti- 
tution itself makes in Article IV, Section 31, relating 
to drains, ditches, etc. (Marshall vs. Upper Cache 
Drainage District, 313 111. 11.) 

We are therefore of the opinion that such a tax 
as is proposed by the order in question could not 
lawfully be levied under the Constitution of this 

state. 

Yours truly,

In the Matter of the Decision of the U. S. Supreme 

Court in the Case of City of Chicago v. 

Chicago Rapid Transit Co. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was ordered published and placed on file: 

Department of Law,( 
Chicago, November 2, 1931. | 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen— The United States Supreme Court 
recently disposed of the case of City of Chicago v. 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company by dismissing the 
appeal of the city. A copy of the order entered by 
the court is herewith transmitted. 

The case involved the validity of the current 



rates of fare charged by the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company. 

On June 28, 1928, the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission entered an order denying to the Rapid 
Transit Company the right to discontinue from its 
schedule of rates the following items: ticket fare 
(three tickets of 25c), weekly pass (bearer, $1.25), 
weekly pass (bearer, through suburban fares north 
of Howard street and west of Desplaines avenue, 
$2.00). 

The Chicago Rapid Transit Company thereupon 
filed its bill in the United States Court to enjoin 
the Illinois Commerce Commission and the attorney 
general from interfering with the Rapid Transit 
Company in charging and collecting the present rates * 
of fare, i.e., ten cents cash per adult passenger 
within 'the city of Chicago, and other rates (not 
material to specify for the purposes of this letter) 
for children's fares and for through suburban fares. 

The Citv of Chicago, by its corporation counsel 
Samuel A. Ettelson and special assistants, secured 
leave of the Federal Statutory Court to become a 
party to the litigation between the Rapid Transit 
Company and the Illinois Commerce Commission 
and leave having been granted, sought to have the 
suit of the Rapid Transit Company dismissexl for 
want of jurisdiction in the Federal Statutory Court. 
The point urged in support of the petition of the 
city to dismiss was that the city of Chicago had 
a contract with the Elevated Railway Companies, 
predecessors to the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, 
for a five cent fare within the city which the Chi- 
cago Rapid Transit Company assumed upon the con- 
solidation of the Elevated Railway Companies; that 
notwithstanding the Illinois Commerce Commission 
had subsequently ignored the contract ordinances 
and fixed a higher rate of fare, the company had 
no right to complain to the Federal Statutory Court 
that the rate fixed by the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission was inadequate because the company had no 
vested right in any fare in excess of five cents. The 
United States District Court refused to dismiss the 
proceedings and. after a hearing on the merits ot 
the case, entered a final decree enjoining the Illinois 
Commerce Commission and the attorney general as 
prayed for by the Chicago Rapid Transit Company. 
Neither the Illinois Commerce Commission nor the 
attorney general prosecuted an appeal from the final 
decree of the Federal Statutory Court and, although 
requested by the city's counsel, refused to join m an 
appeal with the city. The city thereupon petitioned 
for and was given leave to prosecute a separate 
appeal to the United States Supreme Court. 

The record and briefs were filed in the Supreme 
Court of the United States to the October term 1931, 
and the case was prepared for oral argument by 
\lbert H. Veeder, as special assistant corporation 
counsel, and JosepI^ F. Grossman, second assistant 
corporation counsel. These men appeared upon the 
call of the case at Washington on Wednesday, 
October 21, and, upon a statement of the case to 
the court, the chief justice indicated that the 
Supreme Court would not hear the merits of the 
case because the Illinois Commerce Commission and 
the attorney general were not before the court. 

The effect of this decision is that the city of 
Chicago is helpless in any case brought into the 
Federal Courts involving Uie rates and service of 
public utilities; that the interests of the people 
affected by any service or rate of a public utility 
must be protected in the Federal Courts by the 



November 5, 1931.

ORDER DISMISSING THE APPEAL OP THE CITY OP CHICAGO. 

No. 25. City of Chicago, appellant, v. Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company. Appeal from the District 
Court of the United States for the Northern District 
of Illinois. Per curiam: This suit was brought to 
restrain the Illinois Commerce Commission and the 
Attorney General of the State of Illinois from en- 
forcing an order of the commission prescribing rates 
of fare upon the appellee's railroads upon the ground 
that the order was confiscatory and in violation of 
the fourteenth amendment of the Constitution of 
the United States. The city of Chicago was per- 
mitted to intervene as defendant. The District 
Court, composed of three judges (U. S. C, Title 28, 
Sec. 380), granted an interlocutory injunction, and 
on final hearing entered its decree, adjudging, upon 
findings, that the rates prescribed by the State 
commission were confiscatory and permanently re- 
straining the enforcement of its order. The Illinois 
Commerce Commission and the Attorney General of 
the State have not appealed from the decree, which 
is thus a final adjudication of the invalidity of the 
rate order. The present appeal is taken by the city 
of Chicago. 

The Court is of the opinion that the city of Chi- 
cago has no separate standing which entitles it to 
appeal from the decree, and its appeal is dismissed.

Exchange oif Copies of the Revised Chicago Code of 
1931 for Copies of Smith-Hurd Illinois Statutes, 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Department op Law, 
Chicago, October 28, 1931. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

-Gentlemen — The law department has need of six 
copies of the Smith-Hurd Illinois Statutes. We were 
about to purchase these when an offer wg,s made by 
the Illinois Book Exchange to exchange six copies of 
these statutes for six copies of the 1931 code of the 
city of Chicago. The market value of the statutes is 
$15.00 per copy and this is what the city would be 
compelled to pay if these six copies were purchased 
in the regular way. The price fixed in the code for 
the Revised Chicago Code of 1931 is also $15.00. 
Consequently, there would be an even exchange. 



In view of the fact that it is advisable at present 
fo conserve the cash in the appropriations for the 
law department, we recommend that the city coun- 
cil give authority for the exchange that is proposed 
by the Illinois Book Exchange. To that end, we

AN ORDINANCE 

Amending Chapter 25 of the Revised Chicago Code 
of 1931 so as to include provisions for cinder con- 
crete building units. 
Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That Chapter 25 of the Revised Chi- 
cago Code of 1931 be and the same is hereby amend- 
ed by inserting therein, between Section 1551 and 
1552 thereof, a new section which shall be known 
as Section 1551A, and which shall read as follows: 
1551A. Cinder concrete building units.) (a) A 
cinder concrete building unit shall be defined to 
be a building unit composed of selected and graded 
screened cinder aggregate, which when mixed with 
other determined proportions of cinder aggregate 
of different selected size and with cement and 
water of determined proportions and which build- 
ing unit during manufacture is immersed in a 
bath and which unit after curing will give a crush- 
ing test of not less than 1,800 pounds per gross 
square inch area for all solid load-bearing units 
and a crushing test of not less than 700 pounds 
per gross inch area for all hollow units in load 
bearing walls and not less than 450 pounds per 
gross square inch area for all non-load bearing 
walls and which building units shall maintain a 
uniform crushing test per 1,000 blocks within a 
range of twenty per cent all to be above the 
minimum prescribed above, which said building 
unit shall have its acidity neutralized and be freed 
from sulphur to one per cent of the mass. 

(b) Said cinder concrete building units will be 
accepted in masonry, masonry walls or masonry 
construction, incombustible walls, fireproof walls 
or walls of fireproof or incombustible material, 
sound deadening walls, or in exterior walls or 
partitions and curtain walls or as back-up units 
in walls, or as facings for pillars, pilasters or 
buttresses and for floors, or in primary bearing 
walls, or load bearing walls, where such primary 
or load-bearing walls are used to receive directly 
the loads from floors and roofs in addition to their 



normal function, provided that in the case of 
primary bearing or load bearing walls the propor- 
tion between the thickness of wall and free height 
between floors does not exceed fifteen (15) feet, 
and the load, including construction load, does not 
exceed the stresses provided for, and shall con- 
form to the thickness prescribed for number four 
common selected brick in wall. 

(c) Cinder concrete building units of the usual 
or accepted type of hollow building units may be 
used in basement walls, enclosure walls, partition 
walls, curtain walls or self-supporting walls, or 
as back-up units, or in fireproof or incombustible 
walls, or sound deadening walls, and in any other 
construction where hollow building units of other 
type are permitted, provided, when used as a part 
of a wall greater in width than the unit used, or 
when used as a back-up unit the wall shall be 
bonded together in courses not farther apart than 
sixteen inches, and the bond shall extend into the 
bonded wall not less than four inches, or a bond 
as provided in Section 1522 of this ordinance may 
be used. In laying the bonded wall in other than 
the regular bond above equivalents for bonding 
may be used subject to the approval of the com- 
missioner of buildings. Header blocks may be used 
in making such bond. 

(d,i When said cinder concrete building units 
are used in places where they will come in con- 
tact with the earth they shall be protected by 
water-proofing material to be approved by the 
commissioner of buildings. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall tate effect and 
be in force from and after its passage and approval.

to read as follows: 

2581 . Diities of department of steam boilers and 
steam plants— construction of boilers, etc.— tests.) 
It shall be the duty of the chief inspector of 
steam boilers and cooling plants and his deputies 
to inspect all boilers, tanks, jacketed kettles, gen- 
erators or other apparatus used for generating or 
transmitting steam for power, 'or using steam 
under pressure for heating or steaming purposes, 
and all other tanks, jacketed kettles and reservoirs 
under pressure of whatsoever kind, except as here- 
inafter provided, as often as once in each and 
every year, by making a hydrostatic pressure test 
where "such test shall be deemed necessary; pro- 
vided, that the hydrostatic pressure used m such 
test shall not exceed the maximum working pres- 
sure of such apparatus by more than fifty per 
cent; and bv making a careful external and in- 
ternal examination. In all cases where hydro- 
static pressure test is used an internal examina- 
tion of such apparatus shall afterwards be made. 
Any boiler, tank, jacketed kettle, generator or 
reservoir 'having been in use eight years or more 
and its condition being such that in the opinion 
of the inspector the same should be drilled m 
order that the exact thickntfss and condition may 
be ascertained, he shall report the same to the 
chief inspector of steam boilers and cooling plants, 
who shall serve the owner or agent with a written 
notice to show cause to the chief inspector within 
five days why such boiler, tank, jacketed kettle, 
generator or reservoir should not be drilled. 

If, after the owner or agent has been heard, or 
at the end of five days, the chief inspector deems 
it necessary that the boiler, tank, jacketed kettle, 
generator or reservoir be drilled, then the boiler, 
tank, jacketed kettle, generator or reservoir may 
be drilled at points near the water line, and at the 
bottom of the shell of the boiler, or such other 
points in the boiler, tank, jacketed kettle, generator 
or reservoir as the inspecting officer may direct, 
and the thickness of said material shall be de- 
termined thereafter at such annual mspection as 
the inspecting officer may deem necessary, and the 
steam pressure or other pressure allowed shall be 
governed by such ascertained thickness and gen- 
eral condition of boiler, tank, jacketed kettle, gen- 
erator or reservoir. And the drilling and plug- 
ging of said holes shall be done at the expense of 
the owner. 

2582. Permits for new plants— plans, etc.) No 
new plants, nor any reconstruction of any old 
plants, for producing power and heat, or either of 
them shall be erected or maintained in the city

been filed in the office of, and approved by, and 
a permit for such erection or construction issued 
by, the chief inspector of steam boilers and cool- 
ing plants, which plans and specifications shall 
show the amount of work and the amount of heat- 
ing to be done by such plant and all the appurte-

nanoes thereto, including all provisions for the 
purpose of securing complete combustion of the 
fuel to be used, and a statement of the kind of 
fuel to be used. Such plans and specifications 
shall also show that the room or apartment in 
which such plant shall be located is provided with 
doors, windows, air-shafts, fans, and other means 
of ventilation sufficient to prevent the tempera- 
ture of such room, apartment, basement or other 
portion of such building wherein such steam plant 
or apparatus is to be used, from rising to a point 
higher than one hundred and twenty degrees 
Fahrenheit, or that the atmosphere of any such 
apartment wherein such apparatus may be located 
may be entirely renewed every ten minutes. Upon 
approval of such plans and specifications, a dupli- 
cate set of which shall be left on file in said office, 
and the payment of fees as hereinafter provided, 
and upon the presentation of the department of a 
permit issued by the department of smoke inspec- 
tion and abatement said chief inspector shall is- 
sue a permit for the installation of such plant or 
such reconstruction. Such permit shall state the 
maximum amount of steam pressure to be car- 
ried. 

2583. Duty of owners — low pressure boilers— 
inspection.) It shall be unlawful for any person 
to use any steam boiler, or tank or tanks, subject 
to pressure, other than city pressure, until he 
shall first have procured a certificate from the 
chief inspector of steam boilers and cooling plants 
that such apparatus may be safely used, and that 
the boiler or boilers, boiler setting, means of pro- 
ducing draft, smoke connections, and furnace or 
fire box are of such size and capacity that they 
will do the work required. 

If such owner, agent or person using a steam 
boiler or tank shall fail to notify said chief in- 
spector of his intention to make any- alteration, 
repairs or enlargement of such steam plant, and 
shall fail to file plans and specifications for the 
enlargement or alterations of the same, and shall 
proceed to make such alterations, repairs, or en- 
largement without a permit therefor, he shall be 
liable to a fine of twenty-five dollars for each day 
on which he shall have prosecuted such alter- 
ations, repairs or enlargement without said per- 
mit, and each day's violation shall constitute a 
separate offense. 

If at any time when inspecting a steam boiler, 
generator or other apparatus used for generating 
steam for power or heating purposes, the in- 
spector of boilers shall find that the furnace or 
firebox in which fuel is used for the purpose of 
generating steam is so constructed or operated 
as to cause the emission of dense smoke from the 
chimney connected therewith he shall report the 
condition of such plant to the department of smoke 
inspection and abatement. 

Any boilers for heating purposes only, in which 
the permit specifies that not more than fifteen 
pounds of steam pressure to the square inch shall 
be carried shall be known as "low pressure 
boilers". 

2.584. Exceptions — elevator tanks.) The provi- 
sions of this article relating to the inspection of 
boilers, generators or other apparatus carrying 
other than city pressure shall not apply to such 
boilers, generators or apparatus while in use or 
installed in any locomotive, steam or tug boat. 
The provisions of this article relating to the in- 
spection of steam boilers, generators or other ap- 



paratus carrying other than city pressure shall 
be held to apply to any such steam boiler, gen- 
erator or apparatus in use or installed in any 
steam roller, steam derrick, steam pile driver, 
automobile or other movable structure or contriv- 
ance of any kind whatsoever used within the city; 
provided, however, that this article shall not ap- 
ply to elevator tanks, except as hereinafter pro- 
vided, and to boilers, generators, or other ap- 
paratus used in private residence for generating 
steam solely for heating purposes; and for the 
purpose of this article flat buildings or apartment 
buildings with more than three apartments shall 
not be classed as private residences, and any steam 
boiler, generator or other apparatus used for gen- 
erating steam in flat buildings or apartment build- 
ings having more than three flats or apartments, 
shall be subject to inspection as hereinafter pro- 
vided. 

All water tanks and all combination water and 
air tanks used for the operation of elevators shall 
be internally inspected once each year during the 
intervening years. The thickness of the shell of 
all elevator tanks installed after December 13, 
1909, shall be computed by using a factor of safety 
of five, and in computing the safe working pres- 
sure of all elevator tanks in use prior to Decem- 
ber 13, 1909, the factor of safety shall not be less 
than three and one-half, and no such elevator tank 
now m use, where the factor of safety is three and 
one-half or more, shall be condemned or have its 
working pressure reduced, unless it can be shown 
that such tank through any cause has become un- 
safe. 

Any elevator tank having been in use twelve 
years or more, which is in such condition that in 
the opinion of the inspector the same should be 
drilled, in order that the exact thickness and con- 
dition may be ascertained, shall be reported to the 
chief inspector of steam boilers and cooling plants, 
who shall serve the owner or agent with a written 
notice to show reasons to the chief inspector with- 
in five days why such elevator tank should not be 
drilled. 

If, after the owner or agent has been heard, or 
at the end of five days, the chief inspector deems 
it necessary that the tank should be drilled, then 
the tank may be drilled at such point as the in- 
specting otTicer may direct, and the thickness of 
said material shall be determined thereafter at 
such annual inspection as the inspecting oflScer 
may deem necessary, and the operating pressure 
shall be governed by such ascertained thickness 
and the general condition of the tank. The drill- 
ing and plugging of said holes shall be done at the 
expense of the owner. 

2585. Certificate — record.) When an inspection 
of a boiler or boilers, tank or tanks, jacketed ket- 
tle, generator or generators, superheater or super- 
heaters, or any apparatus under pressure, has been 
made, and the same shall be approved, by the chief 
inspector or supervising mechanical engineer and 
chief deputy inspector of steam boilers and cool- 
ing plants, he shall make and deliver to the person 
for whom the inspection was made, upon the pay- 
ment of the fees hereinafter mentioned, a certi- 
ficate of such inspection, which shall contain the 
date of inspection, together with a general de- 
scription of such apparatus, for what purpose 
used, the number of try-cocks, steam and water 
gauges, and the pounds pressure at which they 
may be safely used; which certificate shall be

dedicate to the City of Chicago, certain portions or 
parcels of land necessary to abolish this bottle- 
neck; and

entail only a small sacrifice on their part, but it

ment of Chicago, are paid for by taxes received 
from retailers, small business men, home owners, 
rent payers and others residing within the City 
limits of Chicago, and 

Whereas, Residence on the part of City employes 
within the City limits of Chicago tends to main- 
tain and increase the means of livelihood, business 
and general well-being of retailers, small business 
men, owners of apartment buildings and homes, and 
other tax and rent payers, and 

Whereas, According to the list of names and ad- 
dresses of teachers, printed on pages 241-505 of the 
Directory of the Public Schools of the City of Chi- 
cago for the year 1930-1931, there are 1,364 public 
school teachers whose addresses show that they re- 
side outside of the City limits of Chicago, and 

'Whereas, The Directory of the Public Schools of 
Chicago for the year 1930-1931, referred to above, 
also shows that seven teachers reside in Gary, four 
in Hobart, two in East Chicago, one in Indiana Har- 
bor, and one in Kendallville, or a total of fifteen 
teachers whose legal residence is in the State of 
Indiana; there are 40 teachers from Joliet and 33 
teachers from Lockport, Illinois, or a total of 73 
teachers whose legal residence is in Will County; 
and 

Whereas, Such Directory of the Public Schools of 
Chicago for the year 1930-1931 further discloses 
that there are two assistant superintendents of 
schools, each at a salary of $10,000 per annum, re- 
siding outside of the City limits of Chicago, one 
living in Glencoe and the other in Dolton. Illinois:

there is a supervisor of manual training m the high 
schools at -a salary of $5,000 per year who resides 
in Elmhurst, a supervisor in the elementary schools 
at a salary of $5,000 who lives in Lookport, Ilhnois; 
and there is a public school building survey expert 
at a salary of $6,000 per annum, whose legal resi- 
dence is in Evanston, Illinois: and 

Whereas Due to the non-residence of 1,364 
teachers within the City limits of Chicago, the huge 
sum of $3,410,000, or over SVa per cent of the total 
expenditures of the City of Chicago for public school 
purposes is taken out of the City by such school 
teachers in the form of salaries, which are expended 
for the benefit of retailers and shop keepers doing 
business in other cities, villages and towns in Cook 
County and in Will, Dupage and Lake counties, as 
well as in the cities, villages and towns in the neigh- 
boring State of Indiana; and 

Whereas, It is obvious that if these 1,364 non- 
resident public school teachers should be compelled 
to reside within the City limits of Chicago, then the 
sum of $3,410,000 which they receive annually m 
salaries would be expended for the benefit of the 
retailers, small business men, owners of apartment 
buildings and homes, and other taxpayers in the 
City of Chicago, who are responsible for the pay- 
ment of the salaries of such public school teachers; 
and 

Whereas, It is estimated that there are between 
twelve and thirteen hundred graduates of the Chi- 
cago Normal College who are walking the streets of 
Chicago, jobless and unemployed, unable to And 
work, and consequently in distress and misery, while 
outsiders and non-residents of the City of Chicago 
are being imported into the public school system 
of Chicago by the Board of Education and are given 
preference over jobless and unemployed teachers 
living within the City limits of Chicago; therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago be and it is hereby directed to en- 
force Section 668 of the Revised Chicago Code ot 
1931 which provides that all officers and employes 
in the classified civil service shall be actual resi- 
dents of the City of Chicago, and that those who 
shall fail to comply with the provisions of this sec- 
tion shall be discharged from the service; and be it 
further 

Resolved, That the Board of Education be and it 
is hereby requested to report to this Council the 
reasons why teachers in the public schools of Chi- 
cago residing outside of the City limits have been 
permitted to remain in the employ of the Board of 
Education when many eligible teachers who are 
residents of Chicago and out of employment, should 
have been given preference; and be it further 

Ordered, That the City Clerk be and he is hereby 
directed to send a copy of this resolution to the 
president and members of the Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago, as well as to the business 
manager and secretary of such Board. 
Alderman Toman moved to adopt the resolution. 

Alderman Bowler moved to amend by including a 
provision requesting all City officials to enforce Section 
668 of the Revised Chicago Code of 1931, which requires 
actual residence within the city of all officers and em- 
ployes in the classified civil service. 

The motion to amend prevailed. 



Alderman O^Grady moved to refer said resolution to

their morale and efficiency to continue to carry on 
their splendid work in the education of Chicago's 
half million school children, which is justly regarded

a, decr.easp in such accidents and fatalities; and 

Whereas. It was found, in the voluntary city wide 
motor vehicle inspection campaign sponsored by the 
Committee on Traffic and Public Safety and the 
Chicaso Safety Council during the six days begin- 
ning with Juiy 20, 1931, in which 15,511 pleasure

such commercial vehicles had faulty steering 
mechanisms; and

Washington, D. C, in 1930, indicates that vehicular 
defects are important and contributing factors in 
15 per centum of those motor vehicle accidents which 
result in fatalities; and 

Whereas, Defective vehicular mechanical equip- 
ment creates accident hazards which can be con- 
trolled and eliminated; therefore, be it, and it is

lic Safety investigate the question of the desirabil-

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, November 18, 1931.} 

To the Honorable,, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval, an order passed by your honorable body on 
November 5, 1931, and appearing on page 1167 of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Counpil 
of that date, whereby the Commissioner of Build- 
ings and the Commissioner of Health are directed 
to issue free permits for the erection of a two-room 
frame portable school house at the southwest corner 
of 88th street and Marquette avenue. 

My reason for vetoing said order is that there is 
nothing that appears therein to indicate that plans 
for the said building have been submitted to the 
Commissioner of Buildings, and therefore there is 
no way for me to determine whether the same will 
be a substantial violation of the building ordinances 
or not. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which the 
said order was passed be reconsidered and that the 
same be referred to the Committee on Buildings 
and Zoning for further consideration. 
Yours very truly,

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, Novemlber 18, 1931.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval an order passed by your honorable body on 
November 5, 1931, and appearing on page 1216 of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of that date, whereby the Commissioner of Build- 
ings is directed to issue a permit to John Krysisk 
to construct and maintain a frame porch on the 
rear of the building located at No. 1629 West 17th 
street. 

My reason for vetoing said order is that the said 
order indicates that the porch is to be forty feet 
high, which is considerably in excess of what should 
be permitted in a frame structure of this kind, and 
it is contrary to the City ordinances. No reason 
appears why such a violation of the ordinance 
should be permitted. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which the 
said order was passed be reconsidered and that the 
same be referred to the Committee on Buildings and 
Zoning for further consideration.

Office of the 
Chicago, November 16, 

To the Honorable, the Citij Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

'Gentlemen — I am in receipt of a communica- 
tion from the President of ttie United States read- 
ing as follows : 

"The White House, 
Washington. 

November 9, 1931. 

My Dear .Mayor Cermak : 

From December 2 to 5 will be held in Wash- 
ington a national Conference on Home Building 
and Home Ownership which I have called to con- 
sider the whole question of homes — urban and 
rural. 

This conference follows months of study by 
committees of men and women of authority and 
experience who have gathered and analyzed avail- 
able information as well as made additional 
studies and inquiries. lAmong the subjects con- 
sidered are construction, financing, design, equip- 
ment, city planning, environment, furnishing, 
home management, and the reports and recom- 
mendations are based on the best experience of 
those who have special knowledge of the sub- 
jects. 

All of these questions are so interlaced with 
our economic situation, and adequate housing in- 
volves such important aspects of health, morals, 
education, and efliciency that I am hopeful that 
every community will participate in the forth- 
coming conference. 

I shall greatly appreciate it, therefore, if you 
will appoint representatives from your various 
official departments whose interests are in the 
respective fields of work covered by the Confer- 
ence in the thought that the exchange of experi- 
ence and the establishment of standards and 
methods will encourage home building and home 
ownership, help to increase employment through 
stimulation of construction and the industries 
upon which building depends, and promote social 
stability. 

Yours faithfully, 

(Signed) Herbert Hoover.

Mayor, City of Chicago,

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith draft of resolu- 
tions to urge that the Republican and Democratic 
National Conventions be held in the City of Chi- 
cago, and respectfully recommend the adoption of

Yours truly,

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Republican and Democratic Na- 
tional Conventions are scheduled for the months of 
June and July of 1932; and 



Whereas, The geographical location of the City 
of Chicago, its accessibility by railroad, air and 
water, its temperate summer climate, the number 
and excellence of its hotels, its exceptional trans- 
portation facilities, its commodious convention halls, 
its interesting shops and industries, parks and 
boulevards, halls of art and science, the approach- 
ing Chicago World's Fair of 1933 and other ad- 
vantages make the City of Chicago pre-eminently a 
convention city and a most suitable place for the 
holding of the great national conventions of the 
political parties; and 

Whereas, The City's claims for such conventions 
ought to be submitted to the national committee- 
men of the Republican and Democratic parties and 
disseminated to the nation's electors; and

completed arrangements with the railroads for a 
special reduced rate of one and one-half fare for

ies and friends; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Mayor address communications 
to each of the officials and committeemen of the

tion of Chicago for their respective conventions; 
and assuring the committeemen and the delegates 
selected that the representatives of the City govern- 
ment and the people of Chicago will extend to them 
a most cordial welcome and will, as a special attrac- 
tion, arrange for a preliminary opening of A Cen- 
tury of Progress, Chicago's World Fair of 1933, in 
their honor; and be it further 

Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon

Proposed Establishment of a Department of 
Central Purchasing. 

Honorable A. J. Cermak, Mayor, submitted the follow- 
ing communication, which was, together with the ordi- 
nance submitted therewith, referred to the Committee 
on Finance: 

Office op the Mayor,) 
Chicago, November 18, 1931. | 

To the Honorable City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — I am transmitting herewith an ordi- 
nance providing for the establishment of a Depart- 
ment of Central Purchasing. 

This ordinance has been prepared as the result 
of detailed examination and report and recommen- 
dations made under the supervision of J. L. Jacobs 
and Company with the direct assistance of Mr. Rus- 
sell Forbes, Special Consultant assigned by the Na- 
tional Association of Purchasing Agents and with 
the support of the Purchasing Agents' Association 
of Chicago. The report and recommendations, to- 
gether with the ordinance, have been approved by 
the Mayor's Advisory Commission and have also had 
the close direction of Mr. John R. Whitehead, Chair- 
man of the Subcommittee on Purchasing of the 
Mayor's Advisory Commission. The draft of the 
ordinance has also been approved as to legality of 
form by the Corporation Counsel. 

The recommendation of the Mayor's Advisory 
Commission, together with the ordinance submitted 
herewith, are in line w-ith one of the divisions of 



November 18, 1931. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



the efficiency and economy program which I pre- 
sented m my inaugural address to your Honorable 
-Body lor the development of a practical constructive 
plan designed to improve the City's central purchas- 
mg administration "by providing approved safe- 
gruards m the purchase, handling, delivery and ac- 
counting for supplies, materials and equipment, and 
to encourage by every proper means a feeling in the 
business community that the City of Chicago is 
entitled to the same consideration in its contracts 
and purchases as are large private businesses, and 
tnat the City of Chicago on its part will deal fairly 
and honestly with the business public in its pur- 
chases of supplies and the letting of contracts". 

At the present time 14 separate purchasing and 
contracting offices are maintained by the City of 
l^hicago and its semi-independent agencies. These 
14 different departments and agencies are buying 
l'?K.'n'An^^^''''^^,^"^ equipment aggregating over 
1 nnSC Z^"^^!'^'' ^^hich amount includes some 
$10 000,000 for such supplies purchased by the Board 
of Education. The total of $18,350,000 is exclusive 
of the contract expenditures for building and public 
works construction projects by the different City 
departments and agencies which in 1930 were esti- 
mated at over $45,480,000. 

It is safe t^ predict that a real purchasing system 
7rom7o^n'. ?' ^otal costs of commodities ^t'^IeaS 
from 10 to 15 per cent. Based on 1930 expenditures 

.Itiil ^^P^''^"'^''*' ^^'""^ ^*" participate in the 
central purchasing system, the annual savings should 
be at least one million dollars on supplies, materials 
and equipment purchased by the present City de- 
partments alone. This does not take into account 
the very substantial additional savings possible by 
a similar purchasing system in the Board of Edu- 
cation and other semi-independent City agencies or 
on construction contracts. The extension of central 
purchasing to these semi-independent City agencies 
wou d unquestionably result in additional savSg 
of at least one million dollars annually. These are 
all exclusive of larger reductions in building and 

City departments and agencies under free competi- 
tive bidding and control over expenditures. 

The indirect savings should be equal in amount 
and probably more. The adoption and use of stan- 
dard specifications will enable the City to specify 
what It wants and to secure what it orders thus 
eliminating the uncertainties which now delimit the 
securing of widespread competition and handicap 
the inspection, and will also make possible for the 
first time the pooling of the City's needs into bulk 
orders. The centralization of responsibility for 
stocks on hand and for transferring and salvaging 
surplus commodities will reduce the City's invest- 
ment m stores, will discourage the purchase of ex- 
cess quantities, will prevent the expenditures of 
funds for new goods when surplus goods are avail- 
able for use, and will return to the treasury an in- 
creased amount from salvage of commodities now 
Jymg Idle and unaccounted for before their value 
IS dissipated through obsolescence and deterioration. 

The total economies which will be effected by the 
Department of Central Purchasing cannot be accu- 
rately determined at this time. The expenditures for 
wm^i^n ^".'^ "material for the operating departments 
will depend somewhat upon the extent to which the 
recommendations for reorganization of the operat- 
ing departments are put into effect. The total ex- 
penditures will also depend upon market conditions 

dnllr Thf ''^V°'!-''' ^^^ purchasing power of the 
dollar. The reduction in unit costs is also unpre- 



1225 



dictable because bulk buying with maximum com- 
petition has never been given a fair trial in the 
City government. 

Under the central purchasing system and the pro- 
visions m the ordinance, the Department of Cenfral 
Purchasmg will have charge of the purchase and 
contracting for supplies, materials and equipment 
and contractual services required for use by all dp- 
P5A™^".^f' ^o^'^^s and agencies under the control 
01 the City Council and for any other department or 
hoard m the City government which is not under 
the control of the City Council but which by volun- 
tary action votes to participate in the central pur- 
chasing system. 

Standards and specifications will be prescribed for 
all purchases made through it, and periodic tests 
and inspections will be made to ensure the deliveries 
correspond with the orders or contracts. Such tests 
will be supplemental to the regular tests and inspec- 
tions by the department using the commodities con- 
cerned. 

The department is also authorized to call for and 
keep records and inventories showing the material 
and supplies on hand in the various departmental 
store rooms, and it will also dispose of unneeded or 
waste material which can be salvaged from each 
department. 

Purchases will be made on requisition by the 
head of each department, but the standards and 
specifications called for will be set by a board of 
standardization, provided for in the ordinance. 

41, ^^^^u,^''? of standardization created to supervise 
the establishment and use of standards and standard 
specifications will consist of the Commissioner of 
Central Purchasing, the Commissioner of Public 
Works, and the Commissioner of Health, all acting 
ex-o£flcio, and in addition the heads of any other 
operating departments who may be called into con- 
sultation regarding their specific requirements in 
any commodity or class of commodities. In estab- 
lishing standards and standard specifications the 
Board of standardization will avail itself of the en- 
gineering and testing facilities in the various oper- 
ating departments, and will strive to make the stan- 
dards conform as closely as possible to the require- 
ments of the using departments. 

Summarized, the centralized purchasing system 
ta^es ° ^^^ following outstanding advan- 

(1) Standardization and the adoption of definite 
specifications; 

(2) Lower unit costs and better delivery service; 

(3) Reduction in the volume of "paper work"; 

(4) Centralized supervision over inspection 'of 
deliveries, storage and distribution of stock 
and interdepartmental transfers and sales of 
surplus stock; 

(5) Closer accounting control over expenditures; 
C6) Saving of discounts through prompt pay- 
ment of invoices; " 

(7) Employment of a full-time purchasing staff 
which improves buying technique and tends 
to eliminate favoritism; 

(8) Simplification of the vendor's problem 
through making possible the solicitation of 
business from one purchasing office and re- 
duction m the number of orders and deliv- 
eries. 

In order that the department may be immediately 
organized and the benefits from central purchasing

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, November 18, 1931. J 

PROCLAMATION 
NATIONAL MOTION PICTURE WEEK 

Whereas, The motion picture industry of the 
United States has set aside November 18 to No- 
vember 25 as National Motion Picture Week, when 
a certain percentage of the admissions in all motion 
picture theatres are to be contributed to the funds 
being collected to care for our needy fellow-citizens 
during the coming winter, and 

Whereas, The Chicago committee in charge of 
this most worthy object has named the hours of 11 
A. M. and 1 P. M. on Saturday, November 21, as the 
time when the motion picture theatres of our com- 
munity will make their contribution to this cause, 
and 

Whereas, This plan offers the regular patrons of 
the motion picture theatres of Cook County an op- 
portunity to contribute to our local relief fund a 
substantial sum without additional cost to them- 
selves, and the success of the plan is dependent en- 
tirely upon the co-operation of the public. 

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority in me 
vested, I respectfully urge all patrons of our motion 
picture theatres who plan to attend their favorite 
playhouse on Saturday, November 21st, to do so 
between 11 A. M. and 1 P. M., in the knowledge 
that such action will add materially to the fund 
being raised for the relief of the needy, and in this 
connection I would suggest that the Superintendent 
of Schools request that the teachers advise the chil- 
dren who are going to attend moving pictures, do 
so between the hours of 11 A. M. and 1 P. M. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) A. J. Cermak, 

Mayor.

tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and one- 
half (2%) millimeters penetration, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted with one 
hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) seconds 
on the material at a temperature of seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, so ob- 
tained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 
When fifty (50) grams of said refined asphalt is 
heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(5%) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half {V2) of the penetration 
before such heating, said penetration being deter- 
mined as herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) 
centimeters at five (5) milliraoters penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form, 
of said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5; 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not les than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one 
and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in diam- 
eter and three and one-half (31/2) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-fi%'e (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall not have lost over three (3) per 
cent by weight. The flux shall have a penetration of 
not less than twenty (20) millimeters, the penetra- 
tion being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with 
fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) second, the mate- 
rial being tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fah- 
renheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
(2) of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux 
must be used, provided that the mixture of refined 
asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of the 
refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt cement 
shall contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by 
weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said 
asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and heating 
the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said 
flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than 
two hundred flfty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees Fahr- 
enheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly agitated 
when hot by steam, air or mechanical means until 
the said mixture has become homogeneous. The 
said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, of not less than two 
and one-half (2^/2) millimeters and not more than 



seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50; grams of 
said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (51/2; centimeters in diameter 
and three and one-half (31/2; centimeters in depth 
and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325j degrees Fahrenheit for five (5j 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 
(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half (%) of the penetration before such heat- 
ing. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone, 
or other stone, the said sand or the said limestone 
screenings, and the said asphalt cement. The said 
mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per cent 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; twenty- 
five (25) per cent of said sand or said limestone 
screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said lime- 
stone, or other stone. The said mixture shall be 
spread on the said concrete foundation, and while 
in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled to an 
even surface with a self-propelled roller weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder course 
after ultimate compression shall have a thickness 
of two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and one and one-half (1%) inches 
below the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately, to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately 
mixed with the said asphalt cement. The said mix- 
ture shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in 
carbon disulphide, nine and five-tenths (9.5) per 
cent; said levigated stone, fifteen and five-tenths 
(15.5) per cent; said sand which can pass an 
eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass a two 
hundred (200) mesh sieve, twenty-five (25)

looking after her own citizens until prosperity is 
restored, the City Council of the City of Chicago has 
offilcially commended the movement for "Chicago 
Jobs for Chicagoans First" and has made an appeal 
to the employers of Chicago to give all available 
jobs to Chicagoans. in preference to floaters, strag- 
glers and strangers who do not have the responsi- 
bilities of citizenship; and 

Whereas. It would be most helpful in the carry- 
ing out of this policy of "Chicago Jobs for Chi- 
cagoans", if, during the period of depression, the- 
merchants, contractors and manufacturers of Chi- 
cago would pursue a policy of "Chicago Contracts for 
Chicago Concerns" where prices and service are 
equal. Such a movement would serve to revive 
business in Chicago and furnish increased employ- 
ment; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago appeal to all the business concerns in Chi- 
cago to co-operate in the gigantic undertaking of

in any other year in the history of Cook County, and 

Whereas, The total sum of $9,725,853 worth of 
property was forfeited to the state after being put 
■up for sale, constituting 60 per cent of the total for- 
feitures of property for non-payment of taxes in 
Cook County during the past forty years, and 

Whereas, A large portion of such tax delinquency 
is due to the fact that the workers and wage earn- 
ers of Cook County who own their homes, have be- 
come the victims of the most paralyzing industrial 
and financial panic within the memory of this gene- 
ration, and 

Whereas, Most of these tax delinquents are work- 
ers and wage earners, who, by reason of continued 
unemployment, the closing of hanks, and other reas- 
ons beyond their control, have become delinquent to 
the County Treasurer for the non-payment of taxes 
in various sums of less than two hundred dollars, 
simply because they are unable to raise the small 
.amounts necessary to pay their taxes, and 

Whereas, The Joint Emergency Unemployment 
Relief Fund of Cook County and the various char- 
itable organizations in Chicago and Cook County 
will not furnish employment or assistance to any 
unemployed persons who own their own homes, al- 
though such homes in nearly all cases carry heavy 
mortgages, thus penalizing thrift and industry, and 

Whereas, These home owners, while unemployed, 
are as deserving of relief as other unemployed; 
therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Joint Emergency Relief Fund 
of Cook County, and the various charitable onganiza- 
lions in Chicago and Cook County be and they are 
hereby requested to remove any restrictions which 
J hoy may have against unemployed wage earners and 



workers who may own their own homes and who are 
delinquent in the payment of the taxes on their 
homes by reason of long and continued unemploy- 
men( and loss of work; and be it further 

Resolved, That the Joint Emergency Relief Fund 
of Cook County be and it is hereby requested to 
devise some plan whereby home owners who are 
delinquent in the payment of their taxes for any 
year in sums of less than two hundred dollars, be 
given the privilege of receiving work and employ- 
ment from such Joint Emergency Relief Fund of 
Cook County, and to have their wages credited and 
set aside for the sole purpose of paying the taxes 
which have become delinquent upon their home- 
steads, thus saving their homes from forfeiture; 
and, further, be it 

Ordered, That the City Clerk be and he is hereby 
requested to send a copy of this resolution to the 
Chairman and members of the Executive and Budget 
Committee of the Joint Emergency Relief Fund of 
Cook County, as well as to the President and Secre- 
tary of each of the principal charitable organiza- 
tions in Chicago.

Whereas, The "L" pillars left standing in wid- 
ened thoroughfares are not only a serious impedi- 
ment to traffic but are a menace to safety, and for 
that reason should not be tolerated; tnerefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Committee on Traffic and 
Public Safety be and it is hereby directed to give 
consideration to the matter of the removal of "L" 
pillars standing in the roadways of streets which 
have been widened, and to make such recommenda- 
tions as may be necessary and proper to accomplish 
the removal of these obstructions, to the end that 
the streets which have been widened at such great 
cost may serve in the fullest degree the purpose in- 
tended when the improvements for their widening 
were undertaken. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Feigenbutz moved to adopt said resolution. 
The motion prevailed. 



FORTY-SIXTH WARD. 

In the Matter of the Shutting Off of the Gas Supply to 
Water Heaters in Bathrooms and Toilet Rooms. 

Alderman Nelson presented a resolution directing the 
Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company to cease shutting 



off the gas supply to certain water heaters until an in- 
vestigation of the questions involved can be made by 
the City Council Committee on Public Health. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Nelson moved to adopt said resolution. 

Alderman Waller moved to amend by inserting after 
the word "heaters" in the fourth paragraph of said 
resolution the following language: 

"and to re-connect gas to such heaters as are con- 
nected with outside flues,". 
The motion prevailed. 

The question being put on the adoption of said reso- 
lution, as amended, the motion prevailed. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas. Section 3060 of the Revised Chicago 
Code of 19'31, which was originally enacted in 1907, 
provides that no gas water heater shall be insf ailed 
in any bath room or toilet room; and 

Whereas, There are now 22,000 such installations, 
most of them in the homes of poor people, and 
there has never been any attempt either on the part 
of the Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company or the 
City officials to enforce said ordinance; and 

Whereas. At this time the Peoples Gas Light and 
Coke Company have notified all users of gas water 
heaters installed in a bath room or a toilet room, 
even where such heater is connected with a flue, to 
remove the same; and the Gas Company is now daily 
engaged in shutting off such gas water heaters, de- 
priving the people of hot water in stove-heated flats; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That this City Council does hereby call 
upon tbe Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company to 
stop disconnecting their gas connected with such 
water heaters, and to re-connect gas to such heaters 
as are connected with outside flues, until such time 
as the City Council Committee on Public Health can 
investigate this matter; and, be it further 

Resolved, That if it is found that this change in 
policy on the part of the Gas Company is brought 
about because of the new mixture of artificial and 
natural gas that we believe the Gas Company should 
pay for any expense in removing and relocating such 
water heaters; be it further 

Resolved, That the City Clerk forward a copy of 
this resolution immediately to the Peoples Gas Light 
and Coke Company.

JOURNAI.— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



December 1, 1931. 



Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, November 30, 1931.) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewitb return, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your honorable body 
on November 18, 1931, and appearing on page 1239 
of the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of that date, whereby certain property now occupied 
by the Chicago and Cook County School for Boys is 
to he transferred to the board of directors of the 
Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium. 

My reason for vetoing said ordinance is that the 
ordinance is not sufficiently specific with respect to 
what is required from the board of directors of the 
Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium. By the terms 
of the ordinance as passed they are required to 
maintain the premises in first class condition but 
no provision is made for payment for same or for 
the person who is to determine whether the condi- 
tion is satisfactory. I have therefore caused a sub- 
stitute ordinance to be drafted which I submit here- 
with. This substitute ordinance provides that the 
jurisdiction and control of the Municipal Tubercu- 
losis iSanitarium over said premises shall cease and 
determine in case the sanitarium fails to take official 
possession within thirty days or fails to open a 
branch sanitarium on said premises within one year 
or fails within two years to make an agreement for 
the payment of the fair value of the premises into 
the corporate fund to the satisfaction of the City 
Council, and the further provision is made that the 
City Comptroller shall be the one who will pass on 
the question of whether the buildings and equip- 
ment are being maintained in good order and repair. 

I recommend that the vote by which the said ordi- 
nance passed by your honorable body was enacted 
be reconsidered and that the substitute ordinance 
which I send herewith be passed in lieu of the one 
that was enacted. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) A. J. Cermak, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Clark moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 



Transfei- of a Portion, of the Gage Farm Property to the 
Municipal Tnberculosi.s Sanitarium. 

No motion being made to pass the said vetoed ordi- 
nance, the veto of the Mayor to the contrary notwith- 
standing. Alderman Clark moved to pass the substitute 
ordinance submitted with the said veto message. 

No demand being made by any two members of the 
Council for the reference of said substitute ordinance 
to a eommittee, and the question being put, the vote 
thereon was as follows:

the name of which had since been changed to Chi-

Whereas, The Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium

Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago, December 1, 1931. 

To the Honorable City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen— I am transmitting herewith copy of 
the summary report and recommendations of the 
Mayor's Advisory Commission on administrative re- 
organization, improvements and economics in the 
various city departments which are under the direct 
jurisdiction of the Mayor and the City Council. 

This summary report and constructive recom- 
mendations have been developed as a result of the 
survey into the departmental organization, methods, 
services and costs and deal with the problems as 
outlined to the Mayor's Advisory Commission at the 
time of its appointment and as included in my in- 
augural message to your Honorable City Council. 
The recommendations covei^. specific problems which 
can be accomplished without legislative action. De- 
tails supporting most of these recommendations 
have been printed with the Department and Comp- 
troller's estimates for the year 1932. 

The recommendations as presented by the Com- 
mission have my approval and support. I shall in- 
sist upon the active and sustained co-operation by 
every department and bureau head. 

I respectfully request your favorable consider- 
ation and early action on the same. I suggest that 
this report be referred to the Committee on Finance 
so that it may be considered in connection with the 
preparation of the> 1932 budget. 

Yours very truly.

Mayor's Advisory Commission, ( 
Chicago, November 27, 1931. J 



To the Honorable Anton J. Cermak, Mayor of Chi- 
cago: 
Subject: Administrative Reorganization of Chicago 
Municipal Government. 
Dear Sir — The Mayor's Advisory Commission, 
appointed by your Honor with the concurrence of 
the City Council, held its first meeting on May 4, 
1931 At that meeting the Commission elected an 
Executive Committee consisting of nine members 
from its full membership, to determine exislmg con- 
ditions and needs, to formulate a plan of work and 
procedure, to direct the necessary studies and to 
pass upon and submit to you constructive recom- 
mendations dealing with the various problems as 
outlined to the Commission at the time ot its 
appointment and as included in your inaugural 
message to the City Council. 

The Executive Committee has devoted itself for 
over six months to the analysis and consideration 
of the reviews and summary reports of conditions 
and needs together with constructive recommen- 
dations which have been developed as a result ot 
administrative surveys into the departmental 
organization, methods, services and costs. 

There is the imperative necessity that all means 
be taken immediately in the adoption of the recom- 
mendations for the elimination of extravagance and 
waste coming through overmanning and spoils em- 
ployments, through confused distribution and dupli- 
cation of certain services and diffused responsibility, 
through inadequate and antiquated administrative, 
purchasing and civil service practices, through lack 



of free and wide competition and control over con- 
tract costs and expenditures and other similar short- 
comings. These are the chief causes of high taxes 
and for the increasing spread between the cost of 
government and the services received by citizens 
and taxpayers. 

The local aggregate tax rates and taxes have been 
mounting with incredible rapidity while the ability 
of the taxpayers to meet the enlarged tax bills has 
decreased. That civic consciousness is aroused is 
best reflected by the organized demands on the part 
of taxpayers and citizens throughout the City and 
State for retrenchment and reduction in govern- 
mental expenditures. It is also reflected by the 
support in increasing numbers of those public 
oflTicials who stand squarely for efficiency and 
economy through improved management and through 
elimination of waste in governmental administration. 
Industry generally has been adjusting its expendi- 
tures on the basis of improved organization and 
management together with the lower price levels 
and increased labor efficiency. The cost of govern- 
ment and taxes must likewise be reduced through 
responsible and improved management, vigorous 
economy in operating and capital expenditures 
without sacrifice of efficiency in essential public 
services. The remedy for tax relief during this 
economic period lies in these fields more than in the 
shifting of the cost of government from one group of 
taxpayers to another through the creation of new 
sources of revenue or through the balancing ot 
budgets by increases in taxes. 

In order to accomplish immediate improvement 
and substantial economies without affecting the 
standards and efficiency of administration, the 
Executive Committee directed itself to the survey 
of specific administrative problems which can be 
accomplished without new legislation. 

Your Executive Committee requested J. L. Jacobs 
to act as Secretary to the Committee and to organize 
and assign the necessary regular trained staff and 
special consultants and to direct the technical sur- 
veys and the preparation of reports and recom- 
mendations dealing with the specific problems. 

These reports and recommendations affect every 
department and bureau of the City government 
except the departments under the jurisdiction ot 
the Municipal Courts, the Election Commissioners, 
the Chicago Public Library, and the Board of Edu- 
cation No opportunity has been afforded or 
authorization given to date to representatives of the 
Mayor's Advisory Commission to make the survey 
into the administrative organization, methods and 
practices in these municipal departments and olnces. 
Recommendations on these departments for im- 
provement and feasible reductions in expenditures 
cannot, therefore, be made at this time. 

We have advised with you from time to time on 
the progress of the studies, and installations and the 
unusual opportunity and imperative necessity tor 
the prosecution and adoption of mature plans for 
departmental reorganization and co-ordination, lor 
improved operating and fiscal systems and for real 
constructive economy in municipal expenditures. 

The major changes recommended at this time are 
summarized as follows: 

(1) Elimination of unnecessary positions and 
employes. 

(2) Consolidation and reorganization of certain 
existing separate City departments and bureaus. 

(3) Co-ordination of related services and the 
elimination of unnecessary duplication. 



December 1, 1931. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

(4) Establishment of a central purchasing sys- 
tem, providing for standardization of specifications, 
free and wide competition, control over purchas- 
ing, contracting, delivery and storing of supplies 
materials and equipment. 

(5) Simplification of administrative and office 
methods and practices, and utilization of modern 
laborl saving devices. 

(6) Improvement in examination methods 
service ratings and employment plans to bring 
about more effective civil service administration. 

(7) Reclassification of civil service positions to 
assure like pay for like work. 

(8) Centralization of fiscal and accounting 
services under one department looking to effective 
financial control and simplified reporting on 
municipal services, costs and expenditures. 

The plans and recommendations on the above 
have received the careful study of and have been 
approved by the Executive Committee. The plans 
and summary recommendations have also been sub- 
mitted to the different department heads Sub- 
stantial agreement and acceptance of such plans for 
improvement and economies has been indicated by a 
number of the department heads, with such allow- 
ances as are expected to develop in the course of 
installation. 

In pursuance with your suggestion, staff repre- 
sentatives of the Executive Committee have also 
conferred with the different department heads in 
connection with the preparation of their depart- 
mental estimates. In many cases such estimates 
have been revised along the general recommen- 
dations, and definite procedures are being developed 
to put the same into effect following approval by 
your Honor and concurrence by the City Council. 

The above changes have been summarized in out- 
line reports and in the recommendations of the 
Commission on the 1932 requirements which are 
printed in the departmental budget estimates to be 
submitted by the City Comptroller to the City 
Council on or before December 1, 1931. To effect- 
uate some of the above changes, amendment of some 
ot the existing municipal ordinances will be neces- 
sary. Drafts of such amendments to the ordinances 
Have been prepared and are ready for presentation. 
The basis of the changes and recommendations 
are omitted from this summary statement but will 
be set out under appropriate divisions of a com- 
plete report relating to the respective plans which 
«an be accomplished without new legislation as 
laws ^^ proposals requiring changes in existing 

The changes which can be accomplished without 
new legislation point out substantial reductions in 
current operating expenditures with distinct im- 
provement in present standards and the efficiency 
of essential municipal services. The plans recom- 
inended are of a conservative character and cover 
the more obvious and pressing changes and im- 
provements. Further improvement and reduction 
m costs are possible with the adoption of thorough- 
going administration and businesslike operation of 
the recommended plans and such changes that can 
only be made after action by the General Assembly. 

A total annual reduction of $22,150,000.00 or over 
18 per cent of the present appropriations and ex- 
penditures for like purposes can be accomplished 
by action of the City Council. Jpusnea 

Of the above grand annual total of $22,150 000 00 
XnuTL""^ VT^ $10,150,000.00 can be obtained 
through the reduction m annual appropriations and 



costs for operating, maintenance and general con- 
struction purposes. Those are exclusive of the 
appropriations under debt service, fixed chargps^ 
public benefits and bond, special assessment and 
subway construction projects. The balance of 
approximately $12,000,000.00 in reduced annual ^osts 
are obtamable with careful planning, standardized 
specifications, free and wide competition and close 
supervision over contract expenditures financed bv 
special assessment and bond issues. ' 

The Executive Committee of the Mayor's Advi«orv 
Commission submits this summary report to your 
Honor with the recommendation that vou give it

Chicago, November 24, 1931 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

GENTLEM'EN-On July 30, 1931, your honorable 
body passed a resolution (Council Jo^^.^=^ • f ?« f'/,^ 
In which request is made to mclude in the call for 
he extra session a proposed amendment to the Ga 
Tax Act to provide that one-third of the tax so coi 
Sfbe' al^ttsd .0 the City ot Chicago to be used 
for the resurfacing and repair of Cit> streets. 

We have endeavored to draft a bill ^-^ich would 
embody the desire of the City Council m this lespect, 
but we find ourselves handicapped by a constitu- 
ti^naT provision which will preclude ihe passag^ ot 
any law that follows out the precise direction con- 
taTned Vsaid resolution. During the las^^^^-- ? 
bill was introduced known as House Bil No. 407 
. which undertook to distribute this fund between he 
state counties, and cities and villages m the pio- 
wti'on indicated with authority for the cities and 
vmages to use the fund for street paving and repair- 
Tnl nurnoses There was grave doubt as to the con- 
st i'tutionalTty of such an act if it had been passed. 
The gas tax is a tax imposed on the inhabitants of 
a munfcipality and if imposed for the purpose o 
improving City streets, it would come diroctl> m 
conhia with the provisions of Section 10 of Article 
IX of the Constitution which says that : 

"The General Assembly shall not impose taxes 

upon municipal corporations, or the inhabitants or 

property thereof, for corporate purposes. 

In view of the said constitutional inhibition we 

believe the best that can be done is to provide lor 

the dfstribution of one-third to cities and ^. ages 

and limit its use to the improvement and lepa r ol 

' state highways within the limits or streets withm 

he limfts connecting with state l"^^h-a.-s. Having 

this in mind, we have prepared a bil to that efiect 

of which we send you several copies herewtih.

The Committee on Efficiency, Reorganization and Con-

Chicago, November 23, 1931. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Efficiency, Reorganization and 
Consolidation, to whom was recommitted (May 13 
1931, page 197) a resolution directing an investi- 
gation and study of the question of the elimination

December 1, 1931. 



cation of governmental activities in Ci:iicag(j and the 
Chicago Metropolitan Area, submits wilh respect 
thereto, by way of preliminary report, that which 
follows for consideration and approval. 

The expenditures of the principal local govern- 
ments operating in Cook County approximated 
$142,000,000 in 1920 and $295,000,000 in 1929. 
Accurate information regarding current local gov- 
ernmental expenditures is not available just now 
but the appropriations for 1931 and estimates based 
thereon would seem to indicate that the total of the 
expenditures by all of the local governmental 
agencies operating in Cook County will exceed 
$300,000,000 during the present year. Local govern- 
mental expenditures have been increasing at a rate 
far exceeding the rates of increase in local popu- 
lation and local wealth. The result has been a load 
of taxation which has become most oppressive. So 
devastating has this burden become that, according 
to a report by the Treasurer of Cook County re- 
cently made, about a third of the real estate in the 
County having a value of some $3,000,000,000 has 
been placed on the books for sale because of the 
non-payment of 1929 taxes. It is beyond con- 
troversy that relief from this constantly increasing 
burden of taxation is essential. Consequently a 
tremendous decrease in the expenditures of the 
local governments is imperative. 

Progress and the ever expanding activities of the 
Chicago region constantly compel new public im- 
provements. These necessitate the public expendi- 
ture of huge sums of money. Expenditures in Chi- 
cago and the Chicago Metropolitan Area as follows : 
$10,000,000 for street lighting and traffle signals, 
$15,000,000 for air ports, landing fields and air 

facilities, 
$50,000,000 for public school buildings and public 

school facilities, 
$80 000,000 to satisfy the requirements of the de- 
cree entered by the United States Supreme 
Court in the Lake Level Case, 
$100,000,000 for water filtration and water supply, 
$225,000,000 for lake front development, parks, 
park extensions and recreational facilities, and 
$250,000,000 for superhighways, grade separations 
and various traflic facilities, 
appear to be eventual necessities which can not long 
be deferred. Obviously a tremendous Increase in 
the expenditures of the local governments is in- 
evitable. 

These conflicting necessities requiring, at one and 
the same time, both a tremendous curtailment and 
. an enormous expansion in local governmental ex- 
penditures, create a fiscal problem of crucial 
moment. Either an increased tax burden or the 
indefinite postponement of essential public improve- 
ments is the inevitable consequence of a failure to 
solve it. Those legislative expedients currently pro- 
posed to relieve the fiscal emergency which con- 
fronts the local governments will afford no solution 
for it. A reconstruction of the assessing and re- 
viewing machinery will, at best, but expedite the 
imposition of taxes and insure their fairer distri- 
bution. A refunding of taxes about to be assessed 
will not avoid their ultimate payment. An im- 
position of new varieties of taxes will, at most, only 
serve to enlarge the tax base and to accomplish a 
more equitable distribution of the tax burden. The 
enactment of measures such as these may be both 
necessary and desirable but their enactment will 
leave this crucial fiscal problem untouched. Its 
solution can be accomplished only by colossal sav- 
ings in the operations of the local governments. 



Those colossal savings in the operations of the 
local governments on which the solution of this 
crucial fiscal problem is dependent are not readily 
accomplished. The local governmental structure 
itself is a serious impediment to their realization. 
Government has been piled on top of government in 
Chicago and the Chicago Metropolitan Area until 
there exists a mass and a mess of government which 
divides official responsibility and sometimes destroys 
it, under which it is possible for excessive expendi- 
tures by a few local governments to nullify every 
bit of the savings which the remainder of the local 
governments may effect and under which honesty 
and efficiency in every governmental activity are in- 
capable of producing real economy. Maximum sav- 
ings in the operations of the local governments are 
impossible under governmental conditions such as 
these. Simplification of the local governmental 
structure becomes, therefore, a fundamental neces- 
sity in the situation involved. 

Not only is the simplification of the local govern- 
mental structure a fundamental necessity but possi- 
bilities for exceptional savings are inherent in it. 
Experts, whose conclusions are entitled to confidence, 
have estimated that the unification of all of the 
local governmental agencies operating in Chicago 
and Cook County would permit the accomplishment 
of a twenty per centum reduction in the cost of local 
government. Since these local governmental agencies 
expend in excess of $300,000,000 annually it would 
appear that, by their unification, savings in excess 
of $50,000,000 per year may be possible. Savings 
such as these would, obviously, permit a tremendous 
decrease in the expenditures of local government. 
Out of savings such as these it would be possible to 
absorb, without any increase in the tax burden, the 
expansion in expenditures which an extensive pro- 
gram of public improvements would entail. Savings 
as aforesaid would, in one year, be sufficient to 
enable the construction of a lake front landing field 
in Harbor District Number 3 and the acquisition and 
development of air ports and landing fields else- 
where in the Chicago Metropolitan Area adequate to 
meet the maximum requirements of air traffic in 
the Chicago region for the next half century. Sav- 
ings at that rate would, over a five-year period, pro- 
vide funds sufficient to extend Lincoln Park to the 
Wisconsin line and Jackson Park to the Indiana 
line. The aggregate of the savings in ten years on 
such a basis would cover the cost of the construction 
of a system of strategically located superhighways 
connecting the heart of Chicago with the hard roads 
which enter the City at its edge. The possibilities 
inherent in the simplification of the local govern- 
mental structure are enormous. Such simplification 
might not solve the crucial fiscal problem which the 
conflicting necessities of the local governments has 
created but it is probable that the solution of the 
problem will be impossible without it. 

In simplifying the local governmental structure it 
is possible to proceed on a territorial basis. Con- 
solidation of all of the local governmental agencies 
in the area involved would be both the more obvious 
and the more logical method of procedure. There 
are, however, elements in the situation which may 
render procedure along this line inexpedient. The 
limitation on the debt-incurring power imposed by 
the State constitution creates some very practical 
difficulties not readily overcome. The majority of 
the inhabitants of the territory immediately adjacent 
to Chicago are definitely opposed to consolidation 
with it. This stubborn determination of the com- 
munities suburban to Chicago to maintain local 
autonomy creates a barrier which, for the present

at least, is insurmountable. There- are, furthermore 
a number of activities, metropolitan in scope, which 
require governmental treatment on a regional basis 
Any hope of an early annexation to Cook County of 
substantial parts of the counties immediatelv sur-

It would seem, therefore, that such simplification of

simplification proceeds on a functional basis.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



December 1, 1931. 



That such legislation as may be required to 
accomplish the creation of the said local govern- 
mental authority be drafted at once and be sub- 
mitted to the General Assembly at the earliest 
possible opportunity. 

That which is proposed will not accomplish that 
complete unification of local governmental agencies 
operating in Chicago and the Chicago Metropolitan 
Area which may be desirable. The creation of the 
local governmental authority proposed, however, 
will 

1 Concentrate the more important of the 
metropolitan activities under a single authority 
with ample jurisdiction, 

2 Afford a sufficient concentration of major 
local governmental activities to permit the accom- 
plishment of tremendous savings, 

3 Permit community planning on a metro- 
politan and regional basis and facilitate metro- 
politan and regional development under home 
rule auspices, and 

4 Provide a metropolitan governmental agency 
capable of expanding the number and scope of its 
activities within the limits of the Chicago Metros 
politan Area when and as it may be desirable. 

The realization of these benefits will constitute 
progress The ultimate which is desirable can not 
be achieved now or by a single legislative operation. 
A start must first be made somewhere and somehow. 
The processes of evolution will, m due course, 
accomplish the remainder. 

The problem involved is, in its fundamentals, but 
a part of a greater problem of state-wide concern. 
Superfluous government abounds everywhere m 
Illinois. The State is burdened with some fifteen 
thousand and eight hundred and fifty-eight local 
governments. Revenues absorbed in the operations 
of superfluous government anywhere m Illinois are 
not available to the State for expenditure e sewhere. 
The fiscal problems of Illinois and the local govern- 
ments operating within its limits are inseparable. 
The simplification of local government everywhere 
in Illinois is an eventual necessity and a matter ot 
common interest to the entire State. Simplification 
of local government in the Chicago region may point 
the way. 

There is urgent need for early action in this mat- 
ter. Nothing is to be gained by delay. Delay but 
serves to postpone effective endeavors to solve a 
crucial fiscal problem which can not be solved too 
soon A resolution which the City Council adopted 
on July 20 1931, recommended the inclusion of the 
matter of the consolidation of local governments m 
the call for the special session of the Genera 
Assembly which it is anticipated the Governor will 
issue some time this month. The creation of the 
local governmental authority recommended could be 
accomplished at this special session. The legislation 
creating this local governmental authority could be 
made effective so as to permit the selection of the 
candidates for the offices of the elective members 
of the commission proposed in the next primary 
election and the election of such members at the 
next -eneral election. Tliis should be the objective. 



There is no good reason why this objective may not 
be realized.

POLICE AND MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS. 



Proposed Withdrawal of Gty Police Officers from Duty

The Committee on Police and Municipal Institutions

Chicago, November 24. 1931. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
m City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Police and Municipal Insti-

page 1178) a resolution directing the withdrawal of 
SIX City police officers assigned to dutv at the 
J^ederal prohibition enforcement office and their 
restoration to active service on the streets of the 
Uty, having had the same under advisement, beg 
leave to report and recommend that said resolution

The motion prevailed. 



SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON "OPEN AIR" OPERA. 



Proposed Rehabilitation of the Clarendon Beach 
Property for Open-air Musical Productions; Etc. 

The Special Committee on "Open-Air" Opera submitted 
the following report, which was, on motion of Alderman 
Arvey, ordered published and referred to the Commit- 
tee on Finance: 

GoMMiiTEE for Co-operation with The Cnia-iGO 
Summer Oper^v Association, Inc. 

The above-mentioned committee has met several 
times and m going through the entire proposition 
found that the resolution brought in and passed on 
October 21, 1931, page 1101, of the .Journal of the 
Proceedings, regarding cultural recreation for the 
citizens oi Chicago was a greatly needed want. 

The committee was furnished by Mr. Rex Muni- 
cipal Reference Librarian, with data of several' other 
cities which have been operating open air concerts 
and operas for the masses during the summer time 
and they found that without exception it is a con- 
tinued success and not one of the towns enumerated 
below suffered a loss during the operation to supply 
healthy outdoor musical entertainment for the 
masses. 

It includes cities such as Boston, Milwaukee Buf- 
falo, Washington, Rochester, New York, Minneapolis 
Detroit, San Francisco, St. Louis, Jersey City Phila- 
delphia, Indianapolis, Newark, Baltimore, New York 
City, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, Cleve- 
land and Cincinnati. These towns became so en- 
thused over civic music productions that they are 
improving every year the productions, and their at- 
tendance 16 getting larger to the extent that the 
smaller towns near those cities mentioned above are 
running excursion trains for the purpose of bringing 
people to their civic music entertainments. 

We have found it necessary to stress St. Louis for 
several reasons: It is hardly fair for Chicago to 
indulge m the painful sight of seeing a sign right 
across from our own civic opera building during 
last summer which read "Get a bus to St. Louis 
which brings you direct to the door of the open air 
opera m St. Louis"; Chicago being bereft of it most- 
ly because it has no proper place in the City proper 
to produce such an enterprise. It is true we have 
Uayniia which is twenty-nine miles from the City 
Hall and it is a proposition for classes but not for 
the great mass of people who toil the entire dav and 
who f^^nd it difficult to get some healthy entertain- 
ment tor their families after working hours within 
reach ot a car ride and within reach of their purse. 

St. Louis this year has taken in over $460,488 00- 
lor admissions, and that was not all because thev 
are giving away every night one thousand tickets 
to the indigent and the blind, and yet are making 
their enterprise a paying aflair. The total attend- 
ance, excluding free seats, was 503,932. 

The committee in studying the proper place for 
such an enterprise have come to the happv con- 
clusion that the present site of Clarendon Beach is 
just thp proper place at present for that purpose

Clapondon Beach, as you all know, is at Pi-esent a 
liability to the City. Mr. Wright, who is '^ direct 
charge of the beach building, has recently stated m 
ans4r to a letter from Alderman Arvey that it costs 
the City of Chicago to operate and to maintain the 
building of the beach in its present status^ close o 
$00 000 a year, while the proposition as made to this 
o^nmittee by' the Chicago Summer Grand Opera 
Association would bring in a great revenue to the 
coffers of the City. 

The above organization is not organized for any 
prlli\ It simpfy proposes for this City he sam 
acilities enjoyed by the general public ^^ the c tie 
mentioned above. Whatever profit may be dei ved 
will be spent to perpetuate and improve the inst^it^u- 
tion so that the City of Chicago will ma short timn, 
outdo all the other cities mentioned above. 

In addition thereto tlie plan as drawn and sub- 
mitted herewith for the rehabilitation of the Claren 
Son Beach building and the f^Jacent space would 
create a summer convention hall capable of fill ng 
a 15 000 seating capacity under a roof open^on t^h 
sides during the warm months and could be used 
by those bringing conventions in the summer to the 
City of Chicago, where they are now going to other 
cities furnishing them such facilities. 

The present building to be repaired in j^cia ^ 
manner where the place formerly occupied for lock- 
ers and dressing rooms will be made over into space 
suitable for exhibitors attending conventions. 

The territory wherein Clarendon Beach is located 
has the finest hotels in the City, both to the north 
and south of it, and has the best transportation m 
?he ay, having Irving Park boulevard Montrose 
and Lawrence avenues as east and west arter es^ 
iTe Broadway car line, the north side "L" and the 
buses as south and north arteries, and anyone liv- 
?ng an>4here in the metropolitai^ area of Chicago 
could reach that spot in half an hour. 

The Chicago Summer Opera Company, Incorpo- 
rated proposes to erect an open air auditorium 
stage and the building in the front is to be repaired 
suitalDle for the purpose mentioned above, and on[> 
expects to use it twelve weeks, beginning sometime
